Garibaldi: The Escape
From the Publisher...
Garibaldi: La Trafila is a boardgame that makes you live the events that occurred in the august 1849, near Ravenna (Romagna, Italy), when Garibaldi, hunted by the Austrians for fifteen days, succeeded to hide in valleys and in pine forests to reach salvation. A player is Garibaldi in hiding, the others are the Austrian patrols hunting him. Garibaldi wins if he succeeds in reaching the safe point and can run away, otherwise the Austrian patrols win if they catch Garibaldi.
In turns, using the cards, it's possible to move on the gameboard, a big-sized board that reproduces accurately a map of the territory at that time. The player who controls Garibaldi, with the help of a special screen, makes his moves secretly, while the other players have to work together to stop the moves of the escaper, trying to find him.
Garibaldi: La Trafila is a game of deduction and bluff, recommended for all families: the rules are simple, but the gameplay stimulates reasoning and cooperation, offering the possibility for expert players to adopt more refined strategies.
The year is 1849. Giuseppe Garibaldi is fighting to defend the Roman Republic, which has fallen to the French Army. On the morning of August 3rd, after a night of bombings, Garibaldi is forced to disembark in Magnavacca. With him are only Major Leggero and Anita, his wife, severely ill with fever.
The Austrian patrols are already moving: The hunt is on. The escape has begun.

|I got this game in a trade and was really surprised with how much I and my friends like it! It has a similar hide-and-go-seek play style as New York Chase, etc., but unique and with an attention to detail and love of design. Don't know who Garibaldi was or the events that took place in somewhere in 1849? Who cares!
